96w ago - Last year a PS3Jig v1.00 PS3 Factory / Service Mode Jig dongle for Sony PSP was released by Brandon Wilson, and today I have made available a PS3Jig modification that attempts to support all PSP models followed by Test 4.0 for those interested in experimenting and sharing your results here.
I need people who have a PSP (even PSPGo or PSPStreet) it suppose to work on every PSP now, i use a dongle ID = 4444
Also I need you to post your result (even if it doesn't work for you, please let me know, it's important)
This is a test to boot your PS3 into service mode with the help of a PSP. Like i said all the PSP is compatible and all the PS3 users can test it:
1- I need result from every version of PS3 (SLIM/Fat)
2- You can test with the first firmware of the PS3 to the latest one (need the result)
3- Post your result with the revision of your PS3
Just need to transfer the path PS3JIG (including the files) to your path PSP/Game, launch your CFW or LCFW and boot PS3 JIG from the XMB game of the PSP.
Oh yes for the PS3 Slim, you need to unplug the alimentation cable and plug in and press fast power on/off button and eject button (because when you plug the PS3 slim, the PS3 slim turn on alone without pressing the power button)
That's all for now

I was looking up some information about it after noticing that sony had their own ps3 "pandora battery" and came across this about the ps3jig:
What's the main purpose of this?
To enter Factory/Service Mode on your PS3 using your PSP. This is typically used to downgrade your PS3's firmware version to something that supports homebrew/backups, or you can use it to unbrick some PS3s from a firmware flash gone bad (NOT Waninkoko bricks -- only from unsuccessful downgrade attempts).
I was wondering if this would be possible for higherfw consoles, but I'm sure someone would've tested it by then, and that's probably why those other flashers exist.
This is also on that site: AS OF THIS WRITING, THERE IS NO WAY TO EXIT FACTORY/SERVICE MODE ON PS3 FIRMWARE VERSION 3.56, SO DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE THIS ON PS3 FIRMWARE VERSION 3.56 UNTIL YOU READ OTHERWISE ELSEWHERE!
I haven't read too much news lately over the past year or so, but I don't think I came across anything mentioned being able to enter or exit service mode on ps3 firmwares higher than 3.55. But can it still be done? O_o
